Catalyst 8.03 is mainly a Bugfix release. The only new Feature is the Xv support and color space conversion for Xpress1200.
All other Xv stuff and some other things are only Bugfixes.

This is a critical bugfix release that solves a lot of problems especially with firegl / workstations graphics and resolutions mod 64 != 0

For me that means that in catalyst 8.02 3D didn't worked at all, it was corrupted, and the gnome screensaver flickered. I'm using a Mobility FireGL V3200 with SXGA+ on a Thinkpad T43p.
